If your running the ditch most of the way you can pick up the local fishing charts that span a considerable distance as you go. they are usually free and I see them almost everywhere.
Another option would be to download the charts free online and print them out yourself. the problem with finding charts to go south as you are going south is that everyone else is probably heading that way as well ! and therefore they need them as well !
if your passing through St. Augustine try the sailors exchange there , you might get lucky and find some charts. Or ask everybogy you see and maybe someone will have some to get rid of.
I got lucky and got a load of charts a while back , but I'm not letting loose of them !
I do however like the maptech chartkits, it's nice to have paper in the cockpit and a CD to do the planning and routing.
PM me when you get closer to Daytona , I'll probably be here for at least a couple more weeks. maybe something will come available. a marina in the area is having a nautical flea market next weekend , so there is no telling what may be available.
